M. Arch (History, Theory and Criticism), CEPT, Ahmedabad (2017)

Aside from being an architect, Krishnapriya is also an academician. Some of her core interests as an architect focus on the overlaps between architecture, literature, visual culture, and the city. She explored this concept in her Master’s thesis, ‘The Art Biennale Phenomenon: In Conversation with the City’. Another thesis she wrote was presented at the Center for South Asia, University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Back in 2015, Krishnapriya had started exercising her literary bent by working with Design Detail, a Cochin-based architecture magazine. Here, she was an integral part of the writing and editorial teams. Krishnapriya now brings this vibrant mix of knowledge to the WCFA.
